Video: Ryu - "Radio Pollution"

Score: Reuniting with Divine Styler on production was a no-brainer for the San Fernando Valley Rambo as he explains “Divine Styler was instrumental in the development of the "S.O.B. Sound." So it was a very natural process when working together on the ‘Tanks For The Memories’ album.”

[DJ Premier courtesy Wikimedia]Editorial courtesy of Steve 'Flash' Juon: The results are in for round two! On our second edition of "Who Sampled It Better?"

There's no room for complacency here as some of these legendary tracks only won by a few votes last time. Hopefully everybody respected the architects and got their choices in!

And now without further adieu it's time to reveal the winners between Brand Nubian and Lord Finesse, Compton's Most Wanted and Gang Starr, EPMD and Nas, and Digable Planets vs. Ice-T in the grand finale!

So many of my hip-hop idols growing up have passed away, but I took Keith Elam's death particularly hard, because I had been an unabashed and unapologetic advocate of all things Gang Starr since the early 1990's.

Even when Guru's "Jazzmatazz" projects temporarily or eventually on a permanent basis took him away from working with DJ Premier, it was that unique combination of his lyrics & vocals with DJ Premier's beats & scratches that always kept me coming back for more.
